American Judo superstar Kayla Harrison confirmed her favoritism and won the gold medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. After running over all her opponents, she faced France’s Audrey Tcheumeo for the 78kg gold, and won by armbar.

This was the second gold medal conquered by Kayla Harrison, the first American woman to ever do it. Besides Judo, she trains Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Renzo Gracie, in New York. Like her friend the former UFC champion Ronda Rousey, Harrison also plans to migrate to MMA.
